Visiting an Optometrist for a comprehensive eye exam, is one of the most accurate ways to ensure the health of your eyes.
During the exam, your eyes are checked for signs of common vision problems and eye diseases. Most eye diseases/conditions have no early warning signs; therefore, it is crucial to have a yearly eye exam.
During this exam, the doctor checks the following:
Any refractive errors that need be corrected with glasses
Your pupils to make sure there’s no neurological problems
color vision deficiencies
Extraocular muscles, to make sure your eyes are moving/aligned correctly
The anterior segment of the eye to determine if there’s cataracts, or corneal abnormalities
The posterior segment, with dilation, to determine if there’s bleeding or retinal changes due to diseases such as diabetes and hypertension
Peripheral vision and intraocular pressure– to determine damage due to glaucoma
